Banner Of Love
January 19, 2002, 10:20 PM
Many of us have been searching for a way to show support after the September 11th attacks. Thanks to the efforts of some local students, a larger than life idea, became reality.
The signatures and messages that people are putting on this banner, are for victims of 911, volunteers and our country. Faculty Advisor Patricia Tille says, "A lot of them are "God Bless America", "We love you", "Good Luck", "Thank You", you're in our prayers."
The banner began with just a couple of sheets, but thanks to all the signatures of love on it, it takes up 60 feet by 30 feet of space. Jim Mccord says, "I didn't realize it was that big, but I'm sure a lot of signatures on it by the time it's done, so might need that much room."
Students at Mount Mary college created the banner, and have taken it to schools and nursing homes for people to sign. Tille says, "So we came up with some symbols to represent the country, the unity, cause of all the efforts." It seemed fitting as local firemen pull up and join others, in expressing their feelings. Along with a signature, people can also donate money to the Red Cross. Jim Mccord's been looking for a way to help.
Mccord says, "I wish I could have done something all along, you know." And those thoughts set in ink are a signature feature of caring people in KELOLAND. What makes this special for many, is where the sign is going. It will be presented by Senator Daschle in Washington D.C.
